Going Away…

My Mom is moving to Seattle and I’m sad! Seriously, I hope she hates it and moves back soon! But I sort of doubt that will happen… She’s on her way to start her dream job – preschool teacher to a class of four-year-olds. And perhaps even more importantly, my seriously cute nephews just happen to already live in Seattle, and I’m way too old to compete with their cuteness. Just click here to see what I mean. Seriously cute!

So to celebrate her going away, we threw her a little party tonight. It was especially small since the aforementioned nephews are already in Seattle and my other brother and his family are way down in San Diego, and my other nephew is far far away on a big adventure in Kentucky – so it was just Mom and Grandma and me! But that’s okay, we had dinner and cheesecake and we laughed a lot. It was a good night!

Me, as shot by my Mom – she’s getting pretty good!

And this one was taken by the hostess. And yes I really am that much taller than my Mom and Grandma – they’re both under 5’3″ and I’m a little over 5’9″ – I have a tall Dad!

I’ll miss you Mom!

  1. Definitely wait until summer! My Dad lived there before I was born, and he always said that Seattle is the most beautiful place on earth – for exactly two months a year – in summer! The rest of the year it’s grey and dreary, in his opinion. But he’s up there now too, so it can’t be too bad. But I’ll definitely take his advice, and go in summer!

  2. we have been having a very very moderate year – just sayin, lol…compared to last year which was extremely cold for us…not for others perhaps, but for the real seattlites;)

    It does rain, or drizzle a bit…but more it’s that it’s often cloudy that gets some people down…me, I have been here so long, I don’t notice it too much, but I do appreciate visiting sunnier climes;)

    You need to come visit!

  3. Yeah, it’s right on the coast, so I can’t see it ever being too cold in Seattle. And when I do visit, I’m coming to see you as well as my family, Elisa!
